Very disappointing

Very poor. The author knowns a handful of simple facts and just repeats them over and over again throughout the book.

Much more superficial than I expected

May work for those who have no idea what cryptocurrencies are. Otherwise - 15-20 minutes worth listening.

Dull and repetitive

This is a very repetitive book. Everything is repeated three or four times at least. The structure of the chapters is also annoying, especially in the audio book, since they are not numbered, so you really never know if the narrator is reading the name of the chapter, the sub chapter, or the bread text. Find your information elsewhere.

very superficial overview

very superficial essay on ethereum, poor editing. A product clearly aimed at monetising on an hot argument with few audible books without adeguate research or author expertise on the topic.
